Pastor Jim Master – Senior Pastor of City Life International, Sheffield UK, India and Kenya

Jim Master

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jim Master comes from an apostolic background and has seen amazing breakthroughs throughout his life. He has achieved a BA in Bible Studies, an MA in Conflict Management, and a doctorate in Religious Studies.

He was in business for 20 years before leaving to embark on full-time ministry. He has a gift for motivating and mobilising people in biblical teaching and prophecy.

In 2007 Rev. Dr. Jim Master began his ministry in Sheffield with a simple message, “Pass it on.” Pastor Jim’s heart is to see people praying more and mentoring one another so that God’s Kingdom can flourish. The Thursday evening Prayer Breakthrough meetings have been pivotal to the church’s growth and prayer is happening throughout the week in other group meetings too! Pastor Jim believes the church has grown numerically and spiritually as a result of increased prayer. He has written a few books/courses: Pass it on!, Leadership and Discipleship, Christian Development Course, and Living a Christian Life with Significance. They can be purchased by emailing .

He is dedicated to helping people to gain more biblical knowledge so their lives align with the word of God. He believes one of the ways this can be achieved is by joining CityLife Bible School. The school is an inspirational one that aims to motivate and help people grow in their faith.

….It is our responsibility as leaders and mentors of succeeding generations to heed both the teaching of scripture and also the lessons of our experience. Whatever those experiences might be – both good and bad – they provide a vital learning curve on the road of Christian discipleship. Armed with this knowledge, let us grow into what Paul calls ‘the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.’ (Ephesians 4:13)
